What did you want to be as a child when you "grew up". I wanted to be an astronaut...


Petenali asked "What Non-Fiction book have you read that has changed your life" and it made me think of my childhood and how I devoured any book about space and the universe and so longed to go to space. I'm curious if anyone else shared that dream, still does, or what others dreamed of doing as a child...

    I'm sure you were a superb teacher! I hope you still played baseball for fun! I can't go to space for the hell of it, but my passion never died and I still love reading about it and staying with the "space news"

    They truly never do stop. I have gone through my own huge list of things I wanted to be, and the list has only gotten longer now that I am a mother and have to look seriously at what to do with my life. Good luck on your dreams!!

    I know what you mean! I have wanted to be everything from an astronaut to an actress and everything in between. the reality of paying for shcool hit me too, I couldn't afford it and wasn't eligable for help until I had my son, so I'm doing it now!
